Control how you manage stress
In today’s overbooked, on-the-go world, you want to feel centered, grateful and balanced. You've probably heard it before: stress is toxic and unavoidable. But we need something more than knowing stress is bad for us – we need to know how to manage the stress in our lives.
Unfortunately, so many of us are overcommitted. Fear, feelings of guilt and unhealthy behaviors combine with work and family obligations. There's scarce time for taking care of you.
Stress is a part of our everyday life that many of us have difficulty managing. We hear from so many guests who need time for deep breathing, and to unplug and ground themselves so they feel less overwhelmed and more balanced. They’re seeking space for gratitude and a return to the basics and immersion in the natural world. That’s where we can help.
Finally learn how to manage your stress and take care of yourself
During your stay, you’ll strengthen the connection among your mind, body and soul. Through lectures and the progress that inevitably accompanies dedicated time for self-care, you’ll increase your self-awareness, develop new coping skills and mechanisms, and gain a clear understanding of mindfulness and its effectiveness. In addition to the yoga and fitness classes, specific stress-management offerings include:
Lectures on self-care, self-compassion, sound sleep, building boundaries, cultivating gratitude and reclaiming your body
A variety of experiences to learn and practice the art of meditation
